Personal Injury Case Misconceptions

We have been handling personal injury cases for years. Over the years, we have come across a number of ideas that for, one reason, or another, are simply not accurate about these types of cases and this area of law. Here are just a few of those many misconceptions:

1. You can handle a Personal Injury Claim Alone:

REALITY: Personal injury law is complex, and having an experienced attorney can significantly enhance your chances of success.

2. Insurance Will Cover All Expenses:

REALITY: Insurance companies may resist paying certain costs, and negotiations are often necessary to ensure fair compensation.

3. You Must File a Lawsuit Immediately:

REALITY: Some cases have successful resolution without a lawsuit. There’s a statute of limitations, but it varies by jurisdiction. Consult with an attorney to understand the specific timeframes.

4. Filing a Claim Is Expensive:

REALITY: Many personal injury attorneys like Kevin Etzkorn Law work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they only get paid if you receive compensation. We require no out of pocket costs!

5. Medical Treatment Can Wait:

REALITY: Prompt medical attention is crucial for your health and strengthens your claim by documenting injuries.

6. Personal Injury Cases Are Quick:

REALITY: A personal injury case takes anywhere for a few weeks to several years depending on the case.
